Taylor Farms has acquired the Toronto operations of Sysco’s speciality produce subsidiary, FreshPoint, as it looks to grow its business in Canada.
Based in California, US, Taylor Farms produces salads and fresh foods for the North American market.
The company says that its acquisition of the Canadian fresh-cut vegetable operation will support its growth in the country.
“We are excited to add our first operation in Canada to the Taylor Farms North American network and grateful to Sysco and FreshPoint for working closely with us to ensure a smooth transition for associates and customers,” said Bruce Taylor, chairman and CEO of Taylor Farms.
Mark Campion, president of Taylor Farms retail, will assume leadership responsibility for the Canadian facility.
The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
In 2019, Taylor Farms acquired US organic salad business Earthbound Farm from Danone.
